I am a fan of the SeekGod main web site. It is an awesome resource and I applaud the work that has gone into all its pages. There´s so much good stuff there!
I have been a Christian all my life and 5 years ago I discovered I had jewish ancestors. This led me to explore Judaism extensively and in the process also encountered the messianic movement. Although I disagreed with many of the things I observed in the things in the movement, I wasnt aware of how some of their theology actually contradicted scripture until I quit using the CJB bible. Sad to say but that translation is subtly paraphrased and leads us to erroneous conclusions regarding the law and how it applies today.
Thus I did not have proper understanding of the old and new covenant and consequently believed that we still had to obey all the mosaic laws that we were able to. Thankfully reading the NT carefully led me to see these inconsistencies and it was encouraging to find a small group of people who had also come out of the snares of these interpretative distortions on the word of God.
Glad to meet you all.

Pleased to meet you all, Dan and aahavaa, and others who I am sure will be joining us. I look forward to getting to know each one, and learning and growing in Christ together.
I am Vicky, owner, researcher and writer for the website connected to this forum. I claim no credentials and merely try to do what I feel God has called me to, knowing He provides everything needed to fulfill His purposes.
I came to Christ when I was 14--many years ago :D--having been brought up in an ungodly and abusive home. God's grace and mercy are without end and His patience has shown time and again as I grew and struggled and fell on my face, all to learn that it is all about Him, not me and not what I could do or not do. It was and is always about Him, about our relationship with Christ, and obedience to Him and His Word, which is the standard of what we are to believe and test things to.
I could say more but I have my testimony--at least a portion of it, in the article When I Was A Child, http://www.seekgod.ca/wheniwasachild.htm and if one reads my Introduction on the website- http://www.seekgod.ca/intro.htm - it covers some of why I do what I do, and believe what I believe.
Blessings to each

My name is Rob, and I am a Messianic Jew of Sephardic Ancestry. I do attend a Messianic Congregation, however, we see our congregation as one that embraces a culturally Jewish way of worship, not any more valid then any other way. As a matter of fact, I would love to see the "mess" taken out of Messianic Judaism!

Hi Rob, and welcome. Glad you decided to join. I am sure, as shown already by your posts, we may have much to talk about. Yes, Messianic often does get shortened to "messy" or mess--you have a valid a point.;)
It might be a bit slow with just starting up and the time of year, but I suspect it will get going soon. Enjoy your stay. hmmm almost sounds like you're at a hotel. :D

thanks for joining our Forum and for sharing a bit about yourself with us.
I am looking forward to sharing and discussing.Check out our Messianic Section where you can discuss more in depth the "mess" that you would love to be taken out of Messianic Judaism :D
nice to meet you Rob

RE: Please Introduce Yourself! - grafted - 12-14-2008 12:49 PM
I am Grafted; normally considered grafted into a leaf, wondering where the branch went as a bird lands and has me bobbing up and down... sky, ground, sky, was that wood, more sky, more ground.
I am retired Army, a young Christian in training, yet middle-aged in my years, and still able to learn something new each day.
As can be noted by a few members here, I enjoy satire to the point where it becomes satirical; an oxymoron?
I often times employ humor to either make a point or to learn more about a point being made, and more often than not am the proverbial thorn in the side to those who take this world entirely too seriously.
RE: Please Introduce Yourself! - janaadam - 12-14-2008 01:48 PM
Hello. I am Janaadam. I live in USA. I am a follower of Christ since 1984. Unfortunately, like many, i was birthed in traditional church life and even as I tried to branch out to 'live and follow' as I believed the Word stated, I did not see it played out in the lives of those around me who were professing believers. I saw many talking the talk, but not walking the walk. I stopped attending a traditional church in 1990, then went back because i still sensed a longing to be with other believers. as i returned, i found some that were excited about being involved in Christianity, but sadly not alot of hungering hearts. i ended up leaving the traditional scene once again 5 years ago and began to understand what it meant to surrender all to the Lord and allow Him full control over my life. Since then, life has not been the same. It's been a wonderful journey of growing closer in my walk with the Lord and studying His Word. I must say that I have found much of what was taught in mainstream christianity was not always truth. I am learning to seek Him and follow the Holy Spirit's lead. i love galatians 2:20: I am crucified with Christ. nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
